April — October

Our one-day Greenock Shore Excursion will transport you from your British Isles cruise to historic Stirling Castle then sightseeing through the Trossachs National Park before admiring the beauty of Loch Lomond.

You will experience the history behind Scottish heroes such as Robert the Bruce and Rob Roy with a memorable visit to Stirling Castle, see some highland cattle at Kilmahog, and end the day in the beautiful village of Luss with stunning views of Loch Lomond.

As you depart your British Isles cruise, your day begins with your Greenock shore excursion heading through to ‘Braveheart’ country, to visit Stirlingshire and Stirling Castle, arguably one of Scotland’s most important fortresses. Below the Castle, the Old Town of Stirling is still protected by its original walls, built in the 16th Century to protect Mary, Queen of Scots from Henry VIII. Here we will stop to enjoy time to tour the castle, learn all about the exploits of Robert the Bruce and the infamous Scottish Queen, and enjoy refreshments at the castle’s charming café.

From Stirling, you begin your journey into the beautiful Trossachs National Park, well known as ‘the Highlands in Miniature’ for its craggy hills, sparkling lochs and striking woodlands, and is the meeting place of the Lowlands and Highlands of Scotland. Writers such as Sir Walter Scott have been inspired by the beauty of the area, and the Trossachs was home to folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor and his ‘Children of the Mist’.

In the heart of the Trossachs your shore excursion will make a stop at Kilmahog to maybe see some highland cattle up close. We then journey to the village of Aberfoyle located just below the Highland faultline, to enjoy a bite to eat and time to explore.

From Aberfoyle, we travel to our final stop at the conservation village of Luss, located on the ‘bonnie, bonnie banks’ of Loch Lomond, one of the most breathtaking and largest lochs in Scotland. Here we have time to stroll around the beautiful village and observe the many islands, and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. We then travel back to your British Isles cruise where your Greenock Shore Excursion will conclude.
